#OAKSDL Design Workout: Testing Your Education Model - Hack/Pilot Planning...
Thu, May 11, 2017, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM PDT
THIS IS SESSION 4 OF A FOUR PART INQUIRY ARC. THE INQUIRY ARC IS DESIGNED TO HELP FELLOWS AND THEIR DESIGN TEAMS TO ACCOMPLISH ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Prototype a graduate profile that drives the education program and systems of the school
- Prototype a powerful education model that is aligned to the aspirations and values your mission, vision, and graduate profile
- Deepen your education model by working to further research this key lever or aspect of your education program and think through its implications and the conditions that will enable your to effectively execute on this model
- Develop a pilot or hack to test part of your model
These session can be attended in a full series or in their individual, component parts.
In this, the fourth session of the inquiry arc, participants will build from their graduate profile and detailed education model prototypes in order to plan a small scale test (also know as a hack, pop-up, or pilot) that will help you and your design team to learn more about the intricacies of effectively executing on your model.
In this session you will focus on planning out one component of your conceptual model. This may include:
- A small hack (or hack series). These are very small, one day actions that will help your design team to learn more about an aspect of you model in a low-stakes, fail forward environment that will deepen your understanding of a given part of your model.
- A pop-up. This is a short, relatively fast-paced, usually one day to one week, event where you will deepen your testing of an aspect of your model.
- A mini-pilot. This is a short, usually a few week or a month, test of one or more aspects of your model that will help you get a sense of the part of your model that are strong and those that need further tuning (or throwing out).
- A pilot. This is a slightly longer pilot that is usually done after some smaller hacks and tests. This pilot will help you to put your model on the road and see how it work, followed by a very intentional reflection, data-analysis, and refinement/iteration process.
